Far from advocating “socialism in one country”, then, Lexit supporters aspire to construct an alternative international order.

Re-forming the Comecon with Belarus and Venezuela? As a protectionist economy on the edge of Europe that took a different route to its Lithuanian and Polish neighbours Belarus should be a guiding light for Lexiters. Can Grace guess which GDP per capita belongs to which country?

I am actually pleased that Corbyn laid down this precondition. But, I am less pleased at Towarich Milne for how they managed it and even less pleased at their not convincing Blackford and Cable to hold out, too.

There's always a but, isn't there?

The precondition of "taking no deal off the table"? How does that happen?

If Labour (or Milne) want to request an Article 50 extension, they can say so.
Tubbs I have this sneaking suspicion that Corbyn and Milne are trying to engineer a no deal Brexit.

I look forward to Mrs May touring the studios in the morning, explaining that <tschk, sucks teeth> she would love to rescind those parking tickets but it is all out of her hands now, sorry guv.

Is it just me or does anyone else think that Corbyn wants a no deal Brexit?

It would satisfy the 1983 manifesto pledge after all. The supposed longest suicide note in history would then be the 1983 Tory manifesto.

Although Corbyn didn't move on and carried on throughout the 80s and 90s wishing to overturn 'the will of the people' in Harold Wilson's referendum. And that produced an overwhelming majority, not a wafer-thin one that's demographically unsustainable.

Refusing to take part just seems like the latest in a sequence of strategic errors. It allows May to portray him as unwilling to be a grown up. Wanting a prohibition on no deal isnt unreasonable (Mays inability to guarantee it notwithstanding), but why not do what the other parties did - go along, sit down with her, make your demands and then you can say 'Well, I tried, but the PM wont budge'.

I felt Corbyn's right to tell May to go swing until no deal is taken off the table but yes good points I've changed my mind. I get the feeling Corbyn wants to avoid any conversation with May as he's more out of his depth than she is.
